Many of you know how much I love to be in the kitchen (don’t read any more into that! #feminist), and, like many other people I know, I’m always drooling over some newfangled kitchen gadget every time I pass Williams Sonoma. Thus, today’s post is about some of the most glamorous, fabulous, and functional kitchen items I’d love to share with you to make your lives easier and healthier, as well as to make your cooking experiences a heck of a lot more fun!
Here in the South, something is always crackling and popping in the kitchen: whether it’s fried chicken, spaghetti sauce, or just plain boiling water, this splatter screen is sure to be a lifesaver. Fry on, ladies and gents!
How neat are these? Whatever your favorite meatball flavor, meatball tongs are the way to go to get that perfect shape each and every time. Plus, they’re pretty enough to leave out on the counter!
For those of you who prefer a more delicate slice on your veggies, this julienne peeler is for you! All the ease of a traditional peeler with gorgeous results.
These things can get so complicated, but the different attachments are well worth it. If you like an even, easy slicing capability for everything from your plain ol’ carrots to your eggplant for eggplant parmesan, this mandoline is for you!
Love adding fresh veggies to everything but hate dragging out your cutting board and a variety of knives to get the job done? Invest in one of these puppies and you’ll be good to go no matter your dish!
Flex-It Mini Silicone Measuring Cup
I can always justify using measuring cups for bigger baking jobs, but when it comes down to the measuring-spoon-sized jobs, I’d love something like this: it’s flexible, easily washable, and fun to use!
Kitchen Tablet Stand
I know, I know, we’re plugged in every which way we can be: phones, tablets, watches, etc. But think about using your tablet for a quick reference when you’re cooking: you can look up recipes, study cooking techniques, and find tips to keep your dishes looking and tasting amazing!
Love making pancakes but hate the inconsistency in sizes? Pick up a pancake pen the next time you’re out and fret no more! This little dandy is so helpful for measuring out the perfect amount of batter every time.
If you’re looking to lighten up your pastas and salads, think about purchasing a spiralizer. You can take simple dishes to the next level, both in terms of aesthetics and healthiness, with this simple tool!
Want to enjoy a beverage without watering it down? Pick up a few whiskey rocks, which will allow you to enjoy your drink of choice at its fullest taste and body. Plus, they look amazing in your barware!
